{PIN}spirational Challenge #315 JULY Recycle/Upcycle

Hello July!!!

This year the monthly themes will be craft supplies! 

The monthly challenges are listed on the sidebar.


This month it's RECYCLE or UPCYCLE!!

(found on Pinterest)

from guest designer Becca
Here's what she said about the project-
"merry gift tag set with recycled business envelope security liner print on 1 side of the smaller tag and recycled tissue box cardstock punched circle on the reverse side".



Here's my project. I recycled a piece of paper in a sticker set I bought at Dollarama, added some of the stickers to it and added it to a card front and voila!

Create a project, any kind of project with something that you've recycled or upcycled on it!

Here are a few more that I've made using recycled/upcycled items.

This one has a piece of a paper bag on it.

This card was created for my very first challenge here on April 3, 2012!!
I recycled some leaves from an artificial flower.

I love upcycling jars! Here's one I painted using a Mason jar mug.
